Lorena Zicker, AWS Public Sector leader for the Southern Cone, highlighted the pride of contributing to the digital transformation of Argentina and the development of professionals of the future. “We know that one of the main economic impacts of cloud adoption in Argentina will be the generation of 1.2 million new jobs until 2038, according to the FTI study.

For her part, Carolina Piña, AWS Mass Training leader for Latin America, pointed out the need to prepare the workforce for the jobs of the future, especially given the emergence of new technologies and regulations. “According to data from the World Economic Forum, by 2027, 22% of the jobs that will be required in Argentina do not yet exist. This is why we must start today to develop the talents and capabilities of tomorrow,” she said.

AWS’s investment in free cloud computing skills training, with a commitment to reach 29 million people by 2025, reflects a global commitment to developing technology skills across diverse sectors and regions. This effort is aligned with IDC data that indicates that 65% of Latin American companies face difficulties in recruiting and retaining digital talent.
